Ok This Is Now Annoying Me

Recommended Posts

the email works

[code]
$recipient = "glen@gewebsitedevelopment.com";
        $title = "Testing Email";
        $body = <<<EOF
            <html>
                <body>
                    <font color='red'>HI THERE!</font>
                </body>
            </html>
        EOF;
        $headers = "From: glen@gewebsitedevelopment.com\n";
        $headers .= "Content-type: text/html";
        mail ($recipient,$title,$body,$headers);
[/code]

but this does not:

[code]
if ($_GET['action'] == "sendmail") {
        $recipient = "glen@gewebsitedevelopment.com";
        $title = "Testing Email";
        $body = <<<EOF
            <html>
                <body>
                    <font color='red'>HI THERE!</font>
                </body>
            </html>
        EOF;
        $headers = "From: glen@gewebsitedevelopment.com\n";
        $headers .= "Content-type: text/html";
        mail ($recipient,$title,$body,$headers);
    }
[/code]

i get this error: Parse error: parse error, expecting `T_STRING' or `T_VARIABLE' or `T_NUM_STRING' in c:\program files\easyphp1-8\www\michaelt\index.php on line 51

To start with this code is nowhere near line 51, i have checked all the code and its fine. I just dont get why it works when is not inside the If() {} but does not inside the if

Any ideas?

Technically, your first example shouldn't work either. As stated in the [a href=\"http://us2.php.net/manual/en/language.types.string.php#language.types.string.syntax.heredoc\" target=\"_blank\"]manual[/a]:
[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]It is very important to note that the line with the closing identifier contains no other characters, except possibly a semicolon (;). That means especially that the identifier may not be indented, and there may not be any spaces or tabs after or before the semicolon. It's also important to realize that the first character before the closing identifier must be a newline as defined by your operating system.[/quote]
